Do you enjoy music from other parts of the world? Well, I sure do.

Pomegranates compilation of Iranian pop is excellent. Can't get enough of it.

Mulatu Astatke plays the songs of the nightmares I never want to end. Hauntingly beautiful.

The amount of incredible music that has come out of Turkey blows my mind. Ersen's Dunden Bugune and Baris Manco's Proggy Space Epic 2023 have been traveling into my head a bunch lately.

Tom Ze's tropical flavorings make me want to shake, drop and twist it around.

Let's make this the thread for sharing world music.

Amanaz is a great psych band from Africa '75.
Peep this one:


Also Witch (not jmascis') from Africa is nice.

It's about a soccer player who played so well, and with such class, that he was dubbed the "Wonder Child" or "Wonder Son." Technically, it's "Wonder Son," but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense as a translation.



This one was written when Brazil was under a dictatorship. My dad actually lived through that period. It's sort of the Brazilian equivalent of Bob Dylan's "The Times They are A-Changing," as far as iconic period art is concerned. Except in this case, Chico wasn't just riding a counter-culture wave. He was sort of sticking his neck out. My dad personally knew several people that just disappeared. Deemed negative elements, etc. In the very least, he would be expatriated. You have to speak Portuguese to get the power of the song, but it's still beautiful.

I love Mulatu Astatke. I find so much depth in his music. For some reason though, I can't get into his latest album (Mulatu Steps Ahead).

Any suggestions for good dub or instrumental hip-hop artists and/or albums?
